During the third annual "Cover the Uninsured Week" (May 1-8), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and other organizations will focus public attention on the problems facing those without health insurance. While health experts and policymakers identify covering the uninsured as a priority, there is sharp disagreement about how best to do so. Should we expand government insurance programs such as Medicaid, mandate that everyone be covered, or use tax policy to induce more coverage in the private insurance market? To help inform this debate, AEI will bring together four analysts with extensive research and practical experience to share their views on how best to cover the uninsured, and how not to create programs that leave the uninsured, the currently insured, or taxpayers worse off.
